    there is an extra smaller white label on the end of the box that shows RUP5139 at the top(model#) then 51102286 at the bottom (serial #) and then in bolder print it has "18" in the middle of the label, the lady at Ruger advised me that this indicated #18 of the 50

    Unique Vaquero with gold inlay and engraving

    BTW I really don't understand why Hunter is so adamant about the possibility that what I have stated as the information that I received from Ruger can't possibly be correct, and frankly don't appreciate the insinuation that I am a liar or an idiot, or that I'm trying too deceive someone, as it...

    thanks guys, I will check the model # and add it in later, like I had originally posted, I was just curious if anyone else owned one or had seen one like mine, and its approx. value, although I will probably just keep it no matter what I find, like I said it is a beautiful gun, as far as firing...
